|As seen from my office|
If you look closely you might make out the several bird feeding stations here and there. The camera is always at the ready because you NEVER know.
Today I filled the little cups with grape jelly on the Oriole Feeder and spiked an orange half where it belongs. You can just see a touch of color beyond my camera way out in the yard against the fence.
Within minutes the female oriole was sampling the jelly. I have seen the flashes of orange around and figured they were looking for the feeder which was new last July. I just didn't expect they would be here so quickly.
The male was not far behind. In fact, I was still at the camera when She left and He landed. Now I feel guilty for waiting so long to get the feeder out there.
Next goal? Finding their hanging nest in the tree behind my yard. I know it is there because they come from and go to that tree all the time. I looked with binoculars after the leaves fell last fall but never spotted it.
